CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 4 (UPI) -- Anthony Kim closed with a 3-under-par 69 Sunday and won the Wachovia Championship in North Carolina by five shots -- his first victory on the PGA Tour.

The 22-year-old Kim finished at 16-under 272 at Quail Hollow in Charlotte.

"It's been a wonderful week. I have to thank everybody who helped me get to where I am right now," Kim said. "It's been a long ride, but it sure is worth it."

Kim collected $1,152,000.

Ben Curtis shot a final-round 65 for second-place at 11-under 277 and Jason Bohn carded 71 to take third, another shot back.
